Learning outcomes

On completion of the course, the students should be able to:

  • within a project and under supervision, contribute to the design and put into practice a solution to a complex problem related to nanotechnology and functional materials,
  • search, evaluate and compile information relevant to a given problem,
  • plan and give a scientific oral presentation,
  • write a scientific report.


The students should, in a project form, plan, formulate and solve a specific assignment within the field of nanotechnology and functional materials. The assignment can be part of a larger project.


Lectures, seminars and individual project supervision. Lectures will present and discuss elements such as project work methodology, presentation techniques, report writing and literature search.


Final written report and oral presentation (10 credits).

If there are special reasons for doing so, an examiner may make an exception from the method of assessment indicated
and allow a student to be assessed by another method. An example of special reasons might be a certificate regarding
special pedagogical support from the disability coordinator of the university
